On Friday, July 2, the Blue Knights performed the National Anthem at the start of the Rockies vs. Detroit Tigers baseball game.

"It led to some well deserved time off," said Blue Knights Director Mark Arnold. "We have been going hard since Memorial Day, and the game was a great way for the corps to get their minds off of drum corps for a while." At the end of the game, all in attendance were treated to a spectacular fireworks display. "Considering the fact that we will be in the buses headed down the road on the night of the Fourth, the fireworks were a great way to end the evening!" said Arnold.
